Boeing has already hinted that a clean sheet replacement for the 737 (dubbed "Y1") will be the company's next major project after the 787, although it is still unclear if the existing 737 will receive yet one more facelift in the next 7 to 10 years.

The reason for the mismatch between the total and the number of liveries listed is that there is some duplication of airlines between the -800 and -900 series liveries.
